General Dehumidifier Information
RECOMMENDED HUMIDITY LEVELS
 Spring/Summer: 35% - 50%
 Fall/Winter: 35% - 40%
WARM AIR EXHAUST IS NORMAL
During operation your dehumidifier will exhaust warm air from the side of the unit. This is normal operation.
EMPTYING THE BUCKET
The more moisture your dehumidifier removes from the air, the more often you may have to empty the bucket
(unless you are using the continuous drainage option). The number of times the bucket will be emptied depends on the dehumidifier model.

LESS MOISTURE BEING REMOVED OVER TIME IS A GOOD THING!
Using a dehumidifier will cause your area to maintain a more comfortable humidity level. Over time, this
humidity level will become more and more stable. Due to the stable humidity level in the area, the
dehumidifier will need to remove less and less moisture over time.
Please do not be concerned if the dehumidifier is removing less moisture from the air or the bucket is taking
longer to fill up. This is a direct result of your dehumidifier creating a more stable humidity level in your area.
WATER IN THE BUCKET!
There might be a small amount of water present in the bucket before using the dehumidifier for the first time,
which is normal. This is caused by the preliminary testing done by the factory.

Each press of the button will change the desired room humidity by 5%. The room humidity is selectable
from 35%-80% or continuous. The unit will cycle on and off to maintain the humidity level chosen on the
digital display. If you want the dehumidifier to operate continuously regardless of the room humidity, press
the MODE button until you see “CO” on the digital display. This will enable continuous operation and
the “Continuous” indicator will light up on the control panel.
4) Fan Speed Control - Press the FAN SPEED Button to cycle through the different fan speeds: High,

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
6) Bucket Full - When the water bucket is full of water, the unit will automatically shut off , make a beeping
noise, and the Bucket Full Indicator will light up. The dehumidifier will not function until the water
bucket is emptied and placed back inside the unit. The bucket should be cleaned every few weeks to prevent

dry the bucket and place it back inside the dehumidifier.
NOTE: When the bucket is full or removed from the machine, the compressor will turn off, but
the fan will continue to run for a few minutes. This is completely normal. The dehumidifier
will not be removing moisture from the air at this time.
NOTE: When removing moisture from the air, the dehumidifier will exhaust warm air from the
side exhaust vent.
NOTE: Do not place a full bucket on the floor, because the bottom is uneven.

CHOOSING A LOCATION
A Dehumidifier operating in a basement will have little or no effect in drying out an adjacent
enclosed storage area, such as a closet, unless there is adequate circulation of air in and out of
the area.









Do not use outdoors.
This dehumidifier is intended for indoor use only. Place the dehumidifier on a smooth, level
floor surface that is strong enough to support the unit with a full bucket of water.
Allow at least 12”-18” of air flow on all sides.
Place the dehumidifier in an area where the temperature will not fall below 41°F. The coils
can become covered with frost at temperatures below 41°F, which may reduce performance.
Use the dehumidifier in cooking, laundry, bathing and dishwashing areas that have excessive
moisture. NOTE: Place the dehumidifier away from a clothes dryer.
Use the dehumidifier to prevent moisture damage anywhere books or valuables are stored.
Use the dehumidifier in a basement to help prevent moisture damage.
The dehumidifier must be operated in an enclosed area to be most effective.
Close all doors, windows and other outside openings to the room.
AUTOMATIC DEFROST
When frost builds up on the evaporator coils, the compressor will cycle off and the fan will continue to run until the frost disappears.
When the coils are completely defrosted, the compressor or fan (depending on the model) will automatically restart and
dehumidification will resume.
10
CONTINUOUS MODE—GARDEN HOSE INSTALLATION AND SETUP
Water can be automatically emptied by attaching a hose to the continuous drainage port on the back of the dehumidifier. This will
allow the unit to run continuously (depending on the selected humidity level) without having to empty the water bucket. To drain,
simply attach a standard garden hose (not included). The thread standard for garden hoses in the US and its territories is known as
GHT or "garden hose thread" which has an outer diameter of 1 1/16 inches (1.0625 inches or 27.0 mm) and a pitch of 11.5 TPI.




Place dehumidifier on a level surface.
Unscrew the cap on the back of the unit to access the garden hose nozzle
Thread a garden hose (not supplied) onto the accessible nozzle, lead to a floor drain and cut to length.
Make sure that there are no kinks or knots in the garden hose. (See Picture Below)
Turn on the unit and press the MODE button until set to CONTINUOUS.
Garden Hose Installation Reference Guide
IMPORTANT NOTES:
Placing the dehumidifier on an uneven surface or improper hose installation may result in water filling up the bucket and causing the
unit to shut off. Empty bucket if shut-off occurs, then check dehumidifier location and hose for proper setup. The bucket must be in
place and securely seated for the dehumidifier to operate.
